+0 (not that my vote is binding in this tree).

I'm also not sure of the impact from inherit in the APR code has been 
tested yet.  Wouldn't a pipe (i.e. POD) need to have the inherit flag
explicitly set?  Otherwise, it'd be closed when we fork.  I'd need to 
look at the code again, but I'm not sure if it is being explicitly 
set or if it even needs to be (maybe a pipe is always created with

I think it'd be nice if we shipped a decent default threaded config 
(i.e. don't have it spawn 3 child processes and kill off 2 immediately 
because the config is lame) and fix the POD reading in threaded.  
Neither are showstoppers though (the POD one may cause end-user 
problems though).

I probably wouldn't pay attention to threaded MPM until we have the SMS
code active by default.  Once we've removed the per-process allocation 
mutex, we can start to focus on getting other things right in there.
